Cineplex Scene Points RIP OFF!!!

I like to see movies in theatres, but I’m also a cheapskate.  That means, to me, paying $12 to see a movie at a fancy new theatre doesn’t really appeal to me (some movies are an exception).  Instead I go to my local, family owned theatre and pay $6 instead ($4 on Tuesdays).

When I do go to the “big” theater, I try to make up for the high cost by collecting Scene Points.  I’m not sure what the equivalent would be in the U.S. but in Canada, Cineplex theaters (the largest theater chain) have a points program.  Basically, you get 100 points per ticket and 1000 points gets you a free movie.

1 free movie for every 10 tickets is actually pretty good (you also get 10% off at the concession stand).  Where’s the rip off you ask? Read more »

Random: Inappropriate Music on the Radio

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for freedom from censorship, but there is just something wrong with your 9 year old daughter and her friend belting out the lyrics to Rihanna’s S&M from the back seat.



In particular, this part of the chorus….

There’s sex in the air, I don’t care, I love the smell of it
Sticks and stones may break my bones
But chains and whips excite me

Just wrong……so very very wrong.  😯


PAX Prime 2011 – Sold Out of 3 Day Passes

PAX Prime 2011 LogoIf you were hoping to get 3 day passes for this years PAX Prime before they sold out and haven’t gotten around to it yet, well, I’m sorry to say but you are too late.

It was announced on Friday that they have officially sold out and that only single day passes are available.

The single day passes still offer an excellent value and I’m sure the Saturday and Friday passes will sell out soon enough.

If you intend to go this year, I suggest you buy passes before it is too late!!!!
